Wrapping cedars for the winter

I have a newly planted 6 foot Emerald cedar that replaced 2 that were frozen out over these past two winters. What is the best wrap to cover it with & what technique do I use? I was told by Richardsons Greenhouse in Navan where I purchased the cedar to not use burlap, to wrap around the tree not touching it, leaving the top exposed. Please advise what is right. Thank you
